Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) Archive Page

Waterbodies with Suspicious or Confirmed HABs that were reported earlier in 2016 are listed in the table below. Listings are added to the Archive table when a HAB is reported to be no longer visible or no new information was available to update the listing for three consecutive weeks. Waterbodies with current bloom notifications are listed on the HABs Notifications page. Multiple listings for a single waterbody may indicate that bloom conditions change frequently. Blooms may return on any of the waterbodies listed below.

Lake Champlain blooms are not reported here; this information can be found on the Vermont Department of Health's blue-green algae notification page (leaves DEC website).
